Frequently asked questions / Trouble shooting
1. Nothing is visible on the screen, what to do?
Push the button on the bottom side of the VPDMonitor and this should turn on the screen.
My VPD monitor appears to be DOA (dead on arrival), how to fix it?
1. (see above) 2. Check all wirings first. Make sure the adapter is plugged in the wall socket and the barrel connector is in the monitor 3. If all looks good, do a hard reset by gently pushing a paperclip in the pinhole slightly right of the power connector. This should reboot the device.
Can I turn off the display?
Yes, push the button on the bottom of the unit.
I see Satellite data error message on screen, what is happening??
See picture below.
This means the VPDMonitor is receiving data but it does not understand it…
First thing to do is disconnect the power cable for at least 10 seconds. And plug it back in and see if it boots up normally.
Second option try FAQ number 2.
(Third option is to open the sensor unit. PLease contact us so we can talk you through this)
And while the sensor is open connect the cable and press the little button right next to the cable connector for 2 seconds. Now you should see a red led above the blue rotary encoder blink a few times. Now you should see data again coming on the screen. Disconnect the sensor unit. Assemble it fully again. And connect as normal.
I accidentally connected my VPD unit to my wired network, what now?
No worries, the unit will be not be affected. Wire correctly and restart if necessary
Is the light from the VPD monitor disrupting my plants in the dark/night period?
No, it will not disrupt your plants day-night rythm, but for the non-believers they can switch off the display by using the button on the bottom of the monitor
